We had friends over last Sunday for homemade tamales (she provided). I whipped up cranberry margarita, which I will be sharing with you within the next few days, and this zesty sweet/spicy salsa. It sounds odd. Cranberry Chili Salsa. I was a skeptic when a former co-worker brought it to a holiday potluck. Then I tasted it. And I was a believer.
Try it. You’ll be a believer, too. And if others are skeptical that just means that you’ll have leftovers to bring from whatever gathering you’ve taken it to.
Cranberry Chili Salsa
1 pkg – 12 oz fresh cranberries
3/4 cup sugar
1 can – 4 oz chopped green chiles
3 tblsp minced fresh cilantro
2 green onions, chopped
2 tsp lime juice
1 tsp grated lime peel
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until blended. Serve with tortilla chips. Actually, this salsa would probably also be good with grilled chicken or pork.
You’re welcome! 🙂 Fa-la-la!
